    Enjoyable steamed fish and vege. Reduced oil to 10g and doubled lemon juice to 4 tablespoons in the vinaigrette in order to lower the calories. Had to cook prawns for longer, so next time will remember to take vege out 20min mark as they were over steamed by 24min mark.

  • We made this for dinner last

    We made this for dinner last night. I used Alaskan Pollock fillets with brocollini & frozen mixed vegetables to give the dish some colour, it was amazing. The first time we cooked ithis dish we used New Zealand Whiting, not alot of flavour from the fish. Will definitely use the Alaskan Pollock fillets again.

    We really enjoyed this for something different. Neither of us had eaten steamed fish before. We used Blue Bone fish and the only things I did differently was use half Thai basil with the regular basil and added a bit of balsamic vinegar to the dressing. We used fresh asparagus and carrots. It was delicious!!! Thanks Cooking 9

    Have made this, used wild caught barramundi, just a lovely meal, fish at a little longer than 17 minutes was perfectly done.

    This 'went down a treat' with my hungry hoards- I used thawed barramundi and frozen vegetables. The basil I used was from my Thai basil bush which gave it a mild flavour! Delicious and definitely making it again. Thanks Mustard Keen.
